Tokul 1

And now for something a little different…Raleigh's taken trail aggressive geometry and threw in a hardtail. What came out is a fun, playful, hardtail with a cool factor that you can only explain by riding it. Introducing the Tokul 1. An all mountain bike, the Tokul loves to play in rooty, rocky trails and takes you through lines you never thought possible.

The Tokul 1 is designed with a lightweight aluminum frame and SR Suntour XCM 120mm fork. The Weinmann U28 27.5" rims and Kenda Honey Badger 27.5×2.2" tires level out even the toughest terrain. And the Tektro Auriga hydraulic disc brakes ensure consistent stopping power when flying into the turns. If you're after a great riding, unique mountain bike, look no further than the Tokul 1.

Solid well made bike with good components for the price

I'm no expert, my first mt bike. I used road bikes for years but that was a long time ago. It seems well made, worked right out of the box after a few assembly steps, and is easy to adjust. I plan to use it for recreational riding, so I added 5" lift bars, a softer wider saddle, and some soft grips (the cheap hard grips would be my only real complaint, plus the lack of real get "test ride pedals" on this model). I will eventually replace the knobby tires with a more road oriented set of similar width. Raleigh would do well to make a model that slots in between overly cheap low content recreational bikes and mountain bikes. I would add my mods, plus a suspension seat and lockable forks to make a bike for on/off road use. I chose this particular model as much for the paint job as the components or weight. Fewer models with more color choices might be a good move too.

What a bargain!

Review by DamnYankee
Overall Quality

I purchased this for my wife after she fell in love with my Tokul 2. She rides mostly rail trails & greenways so the Tokul 1 just makes more sense for her. Quality & component wise this thing kills the competition in it's price range. A lot of them only have mechanical disc brakes and the fork is usually the Suntour XCT. The XCM is a step up from that for less money overall. It's got Kenda Honey Badgers so there's no need to upgrade the tires anytime soon either. Plus, it looks really cool with it's aggressive geometry. It was delivered in a timely manner direct from Raleigh to my home. It took no time to get it assembled and after a few minor front & rear derailleur adjustments it was good to go riding. I hope this helps someone with their decision as there is aren't a lot of reviews out there on these. I found one on Youtube. The review below seems to be for the 2016 model, as well.

Bargain ripper

Review by Tokul12016
Overall Quality

I have been out of the mtb since I owned a 1998-99 Mongoose NX 8.1. Having wanted to get in some exercising and enjoy two-wheeling local trails I started researching HT's. Of course there are a bizillion makes and models out there, but while searching I found a torture test of the Tokul 3 by Skillz with Phil on Youtube. It was love at first sight. Of course I am no DH superstar like Phil, but the way he rode that bike in the video I came to the conclusion that ehat I was seeking to do would be nothing near his level so I could get the Tokul1 and just upgrade bits here and there as time goes on. So thats what I did. I picked up Sweet Pea (2016 Tokul 1 in the awesome green) back on 2 March 2017.
So far the only upgrades I have performed are clamp grips and Rockbros flat pedals (both of which came from wish app) and she has performed amazingly! She has come back from tough manual slams, otb's, and some seriously gnarly singletracks! For an HT with entry level components I will say she can ride with the big boys no problem just as far as getting out and ripping a couple hours of mtb trails.
The Shimano drivetrain does require regular adjusting, but that takes about two minutes. The brakes being mechanical will need continual monitoring. In the first two months I was 80% paved/20% dirt so I ate through the rear Kenda Honey Badger. I will say bottoming out the SR Suntour XCM30 coil sprung fork is easily achievable. On a budget so I can only afford to go to a different firmer spring at this time.
All said and done, the Raleigh Tokul lineup is one of the best riding bikes on the market for budget HT's in my opinion. Like I stated, I am no Red Bull superstar. Just an old, wanting to stay healthy, okayest rider out there. This bike, my forever bike, is a great little beast and will surely put a smile on your face when you cruise right along with your bud's who are riding bikes three times the price. Plus, you can choose what you'd want to upgrade as you get to know the bike. For me on a budget a firm spring for the fork and some new tires and I will be happier than I already am with my Tokul.
You can follow the adventures of Sweet Pea and me at on IG @ a.gentile.servant.of.christ
Have a blessed day all!
